Once again pointing up the lack of consensus over which motion picture deserves best film honors, the Broadcast Film Critics Association divided its major nominations among seven films for its annual Critics Choice Awards. Into the Wild led with seven nominations; Juno received six; and Atonement, Michael Clayton, No Country for Old Men, Sweeney Todd and Hairspray each received five. All of the films received best picture nominations with the exception of Hairspray. Also nominated for best picture were American Gangster The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Kite Runner, and There will Be Blood. Winners are due to be announced during an awards telecast on VH1 set for January 7.
